  1. Hi There For some or other reason all my pre-loaded rss feeds are not refreshing or downloading any new episodes. I get the url from showRSS and have never had an issue in the past. Not sure what has changed, but for the life of me, I can't figure out why it isn't working anymore. Please advise?
  2. Greetings, all BitTorrent fanatics and gurus. I'm having trouble downloading a torrent, and I don't understand why. The torrent appears to have multiple seeds, yet the availability, and hence the download, is stuck at 0.971. The torrent in question is "Safe.House.S01.1080p.BluRay.x264-KEEPERS[rartv]" (the one shown on top in the screenshot). As can be seen in this torrent's Trackers tab, its Peer Exchange row lists 5 seeds and 117 peers, and its Distributed Hash Table (DHT) row lists 4 seeds and 58 peers. Thus, I'm surprised and baffled that the torrent's availability remains (and has always been) only 0.971. How can this be? The BitTorrent User Manual's glossary defines a seed as "A peer with 100% of the data in the torrent contents." 100%—Doesn't this mean that even a single seed would provide a torrent access to everything it needs to reach full (1.000) availability? Perhaps I'm missing something? Please, BitTorrenters who know more than I, help me understand, or even better, let me know if there's something I can do to get the final bit (pun intended!) of this torrent downloaded. Thank you!
  3. I've been using BT clients since the 90's, I have a WD 8 TB, 5 months old, that has been working like a champ, my Downloads Folder vanished and all data in it. the last thing I did was a scan for malware with Dr. Cleaner because I was getting fake virus alerts I wanted to purge. the drive is exFat formatted and I usually run it on an iMac 3.2Ghz Quad, Sierra 10.12.3, it mounts but that Folder is gone. I cannot see any data on my Win10 laptop although the WD Utils can see it and unlock it. This is just insane...I'm sending the drive back after I buy another drive to back up 6 TB of critical data that I must double back-up on land & cloud. I've tried Data Recovery software and it cannot find a trace of it so far...scanning for quite a while. I had another external that was also bumped off that I finally got back up (long story). I'm convinced the Dr. Cleaner might have been the culprit. I think I deleted 66 MB, over 1 TB is missing. I can paste the contents of the Etrecheck file if anyone is interested, the guy that helped me said to delete all BTs, Lil snitch, ExVPN, all of my necessary cloaking implements & fun sw. that ain't gonna' happen, but I'll never use the iMac for DL's again. I've been up for 2 days with maybe 6 hours of sleep. Too old for this. Thanks to anyone that can comment or relate a similar experience. WD's support page is wall to wall "my drive/folders/files disappeared". that Smartware is junk and does nothing but cause problems.
  4. Hey, I shifted to BitTorrent some days back and I have been having download speed issues. On uTorrent, I used to have a minimum speed of up to 1Mb/s; moving on to BitTorrent, I haven't been able to go past 320Kb/s even after optimising the client
  5. This is probably a silly question, but where do I actually GET BitTorrent so I can use it? I've looked everywhere for it and honestly can't find anything. Like the actual program for torrenting? Cause I'd really like it but I literally can't find where to get it.
  6. Recently any torrents I download have started off downloading at decent speeds of up to 4MB/s, but then start to decline after about 20 seconds. They fall and hover around 75-300 kB/s, maxing out at MAYBE 300kB/s. It's not just one source, and it happens on popular torrents with tons of seeders as well. I've already tried downloading slackware torrents, and they have the same problem. I've been messing with the preferences to try and fix it- which I will attach, but so far I haven't had any luck. I'm using the latest version (I think), 7.9.9 build 42607 32-bit. What exactly is going on here, and is there anything I can do to fix it? I live in an apartment so I know internet can be pretty bad, but even downloading big files direct never has this behavior. Any help is appreciated.
  7. can u help? after press download button, i get this error( Attached file)
  8. I'm using a 4G broadband with dongle and my download speed on every torrent is less than 5 kb/s although the download speed itself can go up to 5mb/s or more. Also i remember that i somehow fixed it by using the vpn TPB was promoting on their site a long time ago. Does this mean either the trackers are cockblocking me or is my ISP being a douche? Some enlightment please
  9. Hi, this is my first topic here. I would like to use a variable download folder based on today's date. But in BT when inserted the variable in the preferences eg. (C:\Torrents\%date%) it creates a new folder named %date% There's another way of doing this or a way to make BT to read de variable the way it should?
  10. My download speed sometimes drops to zero. I'll have to reboot my router. I've got Win10, Trend Micro Internet Security, and a Belkin AC 600 router. It happens from time to time, not always. I'll reboot the router and flush/release/renew the dns and it works well again.... What's causing this?
  11. Hello. I have recently transferred content from one macbook air to another and so also my torrents in progress as well as the bittorrent was transferred as well. In the first attached pic these are files which have been downloaded to an extent but not completely and the bittorrent doesn't read these files as more than one of them have again started their download display from 0%. the second pic shows the type of warnings i get on my torrents. please help me fix this problem as i am unable to download anything. any help is appreciated. there was no such problem previously.
  12. Hello there, bittorrent forum. I tried searching for a similar topic, but to no avail. I was wondering if you are planning to add a feature which would automatically show a Download bar of the torrents which are currently being downloaded. Like, before you close (minimize) the BitTorrent window, instead of clicking on every single download to show the download bar to see the progress, instead of that would it be possible to implement a feature which would automatically show the download bar for the downloading torrents when BitTorrent is minimized?
  13. Hello! I'm having trouble with torrents not downloading in my desktop PC, they get stuck on metadata o connecting to peers (yes, they have a lot of seeds) but they do download on my notebook. so after searching a lot and trying multiple solutions: Enabling/Disabling AV, other clients BT UT qT and so on, adding exceptions to firewall, different routers, different ISP, changing settings) and a lot other things... The only thing it worked (or half-worked) was disabling windows firewall only then the torrent downloads, but kills all my web browsers, despite changing settings to 1kb speeds, and low number on the other settings (peer, max per torrent, etc). Any solutions? I would really appreciate any help you can provide.
  14. I've been using Bitlord for a few years now and for the past week I cannot download anything. I mostly download epub and TV shows. It add the file to my queue but does not do anything showing 0 in peers and seeds when it shouldn't be. This happened after I ran the latest update. Please advise. Thanks.
  15. I went to download this today, http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/10560234/FL_Studio_Producer_Edition_11.1.0_R2_(32-64_bit)_Plugins_[ChingL and after I first tried to add it, BitTorrent said it needed to update. So I did the update, and then when it was finished, it hadn't added the torrent. I went back to the website and tried adding it again and it only brings up a message saying "The torrent you are trying to add is already in the list of torrents. Do you want to load the trackers from it?" with Yes or No options below. It doesn't do anything when I hit either option, and my torrent list is completely empty. I tried looking in the BitTorrent files for a cache to delete or something of that nature, but didn't find anything.
  16. Hi, I want to suggest a kind of basic thing, i want to be able to add a peer that when added will try to connect to it and if that peer becomes available it will never choke that peer. In both directions, basically the highest priority peer. Why, well, me and a friend of mine want to send stuff between each other, maybe a cool "linux distro" or similar, and, well we have a very high speed link between us so why not prioritize that link over everything else, but i have so many times had either one or both sides choke the other or similar and it is super annoying since we might be getting a fraction of the possible speed from the internet compared to the max speed between us. Additionally, an ability to add such a "friend peer" in a list somewhere so he gets queried for every torrent i add, so that if he has the same info hash, i will try him first of all peers.
  17. Hello, Recently I got a new 1 Mbps internet connection and almost on all torrents I was getting speeds upto 4 Mbps. However, just three days back, I dont know what happened but for nearly all my torrents, my speed seemed to have been locked at 130kbps except for today when I tried to download a game where it went upto 2.5 Mbps for half an hour but then again came back to the same speed. I have tried torrents with 1500+ seeds and also torrents with seed/peer ratio is around 7-15. Can someone please help me out? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi! First of all - thank you for this forum! It really helps I am a newby so my question might make you laugh, I don't mind. Now, to the point: I'd like to create a torrent linked to a file on my pc and then, I'd like to seed it in the same time downloading it without making it public. Can one do it? Some possible solutions I thought about: 1) Use two computers (already not good, a lot of effort...) make a private torrent, seed with one pc and download with another (I have tried it with two laptops connected to the same wifi, and it dodn't work, probably because it was the same ip, can you get around it somehow?) 2) Use one computer with two torrent programs (eg. bittorent and utorrent) use one program to seed and another to download (preferable, but I have tried this too, doesn't work, probably some proxy is needed, but I do not know almost anything about proxy) 3) Use seedbox and download the uploaded files back (rather expensive I guess, however my friend has some space on his server, can I make my own kind of private 'seedbox' with it?) Which of these 3 is possible and how? Any suggestions? If there is any other way to do it, please let me know! The goal is to download via torrent a file I already have. It is a private file and I musn't make it public. It's all about a unique qualities of corruption only (to my knowledge) incomplete torrent download presents. I have tried downloading in other ways (eg. google drive) but without much success. But maybe you know of another program/website where downlowading process is similar (I think it's all about sort of 'cloud' of information that gets mixed up when incomplete, but I don't know really). Thank you in advance for any help!
  19. Hi, I've been having this problem over and over. I uninstall it, and re-install it and sometimes it works and sometimes not. I have restarted the computer every time and nothing. It happens also with other Torrents softwares, not only BitTorrent. I also re-download the setup.exe or the torrent files to open them with the BitTorrent. I've read some topics but haven't solve the problem so far. I'm the only one using this notebook, one user only (admin, of course), don't have any virus, malware, spyware, nothing. It started failing yesterday. Thanks!!
  20. Hey everyone! I've used BitTorrent for a while now but I recently upgraded to a new computer and had to redownload the program. Everything is pretty much the same however the list of previously "saved to" folders (you know, in the drop-down menu when you add a new torrent) automatically deletes the oldest entry after entry number 15. I realize that this is a system that is set in place to keep things clean for people that download to different locations each time but in my case, where I download a bunch of different shows and whatnot, the directory I want to save my files to always disappear the next time I need it (by being automatically deleted). So here's the question. Is there a way to keep BT from deleting the entries? Or at least have the program not delete entries until I want it to?
  21. The problem that I'm facing started 1-2 weeks ago. I did not encounter any problems previously when I downloaded torrent files. How can I solve this issue?
  22. So, I've been using Bit Torrent for... actually, maybe about three years now that I think about it (Moving on, before the fact that I've spent three years using one application, baffles me into incoherence) and I do apologize if anything you find in this post... distasteful to your good sense of proper file sharing (You'll get what I mean) See the Disclaimer. DISCLAIMER: The only reason I know how to use Bit Torrent, is because I asked a friend to walk me through it and knowing how incapable I am with technology (If I were to describe my skill, without aid, in finding or using applications and services online (Like Steam and all that jazz) I wouldn't say I'm on the same level as a vegetable, but I am at the grandparent level; pretty much useless) he wrote me a double-side looseleaf (and went into crazy detail, he really packed the words onto that page) with instructions, so again, if I'm doing something horribly wrong, (I asked Reddit a few weeks ago, an answer or two popped up and the rest was scorn for how I used Bit Torrent) Please, correct me on the errors of my ways and that alone may be enough to solve whatever issues I may be having. So, really, knowing so little about what I'm doing and just following my buddy's instructions, this is probably going to be the short part of my cry for help. I've rarely ever had problems with Bit Torrent in the past, but as of late, I have been having trouble getting downloads to simply start and when they do, the down and upload speed very quickly shrivel and die, blowing away in the wind. It's been nearly a month now since I've been able to get a single torrent up to 60% before it shit out on me. So, as far as I can tell you, HONESTLY, this is the problem I'm having and I have no deeper knowledge for the cause. I'll be checking back every couple hours of the day, so if you need to know something or post something so you can see the issue for yourself, I can. Just please remember, I'm just two-steps short of being brain-dead when it comes to this stuff, so please be very detailed and patient with me. Otherwise, we'll both just end up frustrated. I appreciate all the help I may receive and to those of you who figure out the issues I'm having, I offer blessings by the hundred fold (DISCLAIMER 2: I am in no way politically, religiously or economically licensed to offer or give out "Real" blessings, but I'll see if I can pull some strings for you kind people) Gratefully yours, Wesley Robert Simpson
  23. New here so sorry if I posted in the wrong section. My download speeds are being really weird, at first they were at 300-400kbs for several hours, and all of a sudden over night, the speeds dropped to between 0.0kbs to 1kbs. And now (several hours later) I notice that the speeds are acting really weird and going as low as 0kbs up to 100kbs give or take, and it seems comepletely random. Any ideas?
  24. If a proxy specified under Preferences-->Connection is used (let's say it's SOCKS 5), will BitTorrent stop uploading/downloading if the connection with a proxy server suddenly breaks down? Or will it switch to using "home" IP? If it stops uploading/downloading, is it so precise that no data actually leaves the computer under "home" IP or will it deanonymize the user?
  25. Hello, I'm a new BitTorrent user, apologies if I'm missing something obvious. I'm trying to download some files, but upon adding them to the client the arrow next to the file name immediately turns red; the progress bar remains at 0%. The availability bar is also red. Under "trackers" dht, peer exchange, and local peer discovery are not allowed. I'm using a comcast internet service with an ethernet cable hooked up to my Macbook (OS X Yosemite 10.10) and the firewall is at minimum which should allow for peer to peer applications. Been looking around the web, but would appreciate some direct help here. LMK if you need more info or if something is unclear. Thank you!
